Re: How to change Office icons?

I found how. I went to C:>Windows>Installer>{9028040C-6000-11D3-8CFE-0050048383C9}> (replace > by backslash) and then right click on "accicons.exe", choose properties and uncheck read only box. I did that with "fpicon.exe" "outicon.exe" "pptico.exe" "wordicon.exe" "xlicons.exe". And then, I started Microangelo librarian, then opened the file "Microsoft Excel.ink". Then, i saw a lot of icon, i right clicked on the one i wanted to change and choosed replace. I browsed to the icon i wanted and then i clicked open. I choosed save and the icon is changed. I didn't reboot but i will and post an other message to let you know if it worked fine.

but when i typed d address u hv givn it didnt open only wat do i do?

tpt: I moved your posts into a new thread as the original thread was over 6 years old and the info is most likely outdated by this time.

What are you trying to do exactly? what version of windows? and what version of office..

.ink files are link files - aka shortcuts, if you want to change your icons why not try icon packager

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
